Students are allowed 10 absences during the school year (5 per semester) that can be covered by parent notes. The parent notes need to have the student’s first and last name, date of absence, reason for absence, and parent/guardian name and signature. The parent/guardian can submit these excuses through our Absence Excuse Form (link below) or the student may bring in their note to the Attendance office.

All absence excuse notes (medical, parent, legal, etc.) need to be submitted within 2 days of the absence.

Students are considered absent for a single class period if they are not in attendance for at least half the length of the class.

Students receive a full day absence if they are not present for at least half of the school day.


There are 2 ways parents/guardians can submit an early dismissal request for their student:

As your student is leaving for their dismissal, they will need to stop by either the Attendance office or the Welcome Center (front office) to sign out by scanning their school ID.

If a form or note is not received, parents/guardians will need to come to the Welcome Center with their ID to sign their student out.


Students are marked tardy if they are not in their classroom by the time the late bell rings.

Morning Schedule


Students who are tardy at the start of school (come in at 8:45am or later) will need to enter the building through the Welcome Center (front office). They will then be directed to the Attendance office where they will need to scan their ID badge to receive a tardy pass to class.
